  Molecular mechanisms to reduce Arsenic in Rice
  Dr F J M Maathuis, Dr H V Isaacs
Application Deadline: 5 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Food security is under pressure all over the globe. Abiotic stress is one of the. largest threats to crop production and amongst these, crop contamination.
  Behavioural Mechanisms Driving Collective Smothering in Hens
  Dr D Franks, Dr EJH Robinson
Application Deadline: 30 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Understanding the qualities of captive environments that cause abnormal behaviour has been a major topic in animal welfare. However, smothering - a type of abnormal behaviour in hens - has received little study to date.
  Transcriptional battles in plant-pathogen interactions: understanding and re-wiring gene regulatory networks to enhance disease resistance
  Prof K Denby, Prof I A Graham
Application Deadline: 30 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The severity of plant disease is determined by a battle between pathogen virulence and host plant immunity – understanding this relationship is key to developing sustainable methods of pathogen control.
  New biological diagnostics for environmental contaminants
  Dr J Moir, Dr S D Johnson
Application Deadline: 30 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

We are interested in using biological methods to detect both biological and chemical contamination in environmental samples.
  Developing phage therapy to control plant pathogenic bacteria in the rhizosphere microbiome
  Dr V Friman
Application Deadline: 30 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Plant pathogenic bacteria cause considerable economic losses to food production systems. The main reason for this is that hardly any effective control methods exist to mitigate this damage.
  Nutritious crops: genomic approaches to improving the nutritional and commercial value of oilseed rape
  Prof Ian Bancroft, Dr A Harper
Application Deadline: 30 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Oilseed rape is the third largest source of vegetable oil in the world. It is also a fascinating species in which to undertake genomic studies due to its polyploid ancestry.
  Improving arsenic tolerance in rice
  Dr F J M Maathuis, Dr H V Isaacs
Application Deadline: 30 June 2020

Funding Type
